Healthy School Buildings
Studies show that health, attendance, and academic performance in schools increases with improved maintenance of school facilities. Whether you are performing school maintenance, making renovations or planning new construction, the steps you take will affect the quality of the buildings, decades of operational expenses and, most importantly, the health and productivity of generations of students and staff. This website addresses indoor environmental quality, energy conservation, renewable resources and more. EPA's comprehensive healthy schools website offers additional resources for establishing, maintaining, or enhancing a school environmental health program.
